Henry Cavill news, update: Superman is not only impressing us with his built but with his stamina as well.
The British hunk joined the Rock Run at Gibraltar on October where he joined his brother Nik Cavill – a Lieutenant Colonel in the Royal Marines – for the 350th anniversary run, the Daily Mail reports.
Sponsored participants of the event go through an exhausting five kilometre uphill blimb for charity.
The actor is known to maintain a very strict fitness regimen for his superhero roles and its no surprise to see him do well at the fundraising run supporting Royal Marines.
The actor’s impressive frame was spotted at a behind the scenes pictures from the film set where he’s seen sporting a tight and fit Superman costume over his muscular physique.
Henry is reprising his role in the superhero sequel “Batman VS.
Superman: Dawn of Justice.” People magazine notes that Cavill “brings the bulk to the Batman v Superman set.” The entertainment publication has also noted that “it seems his superpower is really, really, ridiculously strong arms.” It has also described the actor as having “bionic biceps.” You can see the image here .
A close look on the 31-year-old Hollywood hearthrob does show that he has seemingly bulked up for the role once again and his very tight fit costume does the work of showing it off.
It’s worth noting that during the release of the “Man of Steel,” Cavill and the National Guard released a video that gave us all a peek of his fitness regimen.
The actor has undergone some intensive physical training with personal trainer Mark Twight.
Twight was also responsible in training the men who was featured in the film “300.” In an earlier story by Shortlist Magazine, as posted by fan site HenryCavill.org, the actor shared his intense physical regimen to get into his Superman shape.
“I’m training two-and-a-half hours a day, pushing my body beyond its normal limits, putting on a lot of muscle mass and just making myself look like Superman,” Cavill told Shortlist magazine.
“I did two months training on my own and four months training in LA with Mark, and that was excruciating – breaking boundaries I didn’t know I could.
I remember one moment, doing some horrible rowing sprint thing, and I said, ‘I can’t do this Mark, I can’t, I’m done,’ and he (Mark Twight) said, ‘No you’re not, don’t listen to the lies.’ I kept on pulling and pulling until suddenly I realised I had finished.”
